1313 1st St, Jackson, MI 49203 $35,900
This fixer upper has a very attractive exterior in a neighborhood of shade trees and well-kept older homes. I am especially smitten with this home because of the vintage kitchen cupboards, both downstairs and upstairs.
Jackson, Michigan, has a population of about 33,500 residents. Before Detroit began producing cars on the assembly line in 1910, Jackson was a major automobile manufacturer. Even today, the auto parts industry remains one of the largest employers for machine operators.
Jackson has other distinctions, too. The first Coney Island hot dog restaurant was founded here in 1914. The first Michigan state prison was built in Jackson in 1839, and from the 1860s to the 1960s, the town was the corset manufacturing capital of the country.
